The water situation is suffering in the south of Hsinchu

The water situation on February 25 in the south of Hsinchu in Chiayi and Tainan is suffering and in need of help. There was an orange light signal suggesting that the water condition was reducing in terms of supply. By the 2nd of March at 8 am there were 7 significant reservoirs in the south of Hsinchu that had lost a very significant amount of water, and their water storage rate was slowly approaching 10%. Hsinchu has many technology factories which use water trucks to ensure that the production capacity is met. But according to the ever-approaching season of spring the level of rainfall is falling and this is affecting the water levels. 

As of 8 am on the 2nd of March the Hsinchu Baoer Reservoir’s water storage was at 12.9%, and the Miaoli Yongheshan Reservoir was at 12.8%, Liyutan Reservoir at 15.8%,  Miaoli Mingde Reservoir at 11.0%  and so on and so forth. The reservoirs (Hsinchu, Miaoli, and Taichung) provide water for the people living in that area, for agriculture and for industrial use. 

All but the 7 main reservoirs lost water, their water storage has fallen under the 10% mark, which is very drastic, the main reservoirs in the Jia, Nan, Zhang, Tou and Yun areas. The reservoirs that were hit were, Hushan Reservoir, Renyitan Reservoir, Sun Moon Lake Reservoir, Nanhua Reservoir, and Wushantou Reservoir are some of the troubling reservoirs. 

According to information from the Spring Climate Outlook that was sourced from the Central Meteorological Bureau on the 23rd of February, the temperature for the coming season is expected to be normal or close to normal. Regarding the rainfall, the spring rain is estimated to be lacking and will be lower than normal and will only sometimes be normal. The water situation will take time to improve short term, so the people will need to save water.
